Double accommodations based on two persons sharing twin-bedded rooms are only sold to persons traveling together. As Scandinavian hotels generally have small rooms, we advise against requesting triple rooms. Triple rooms are available on request only and no discount applies. A limited number of single rooms are available at the supplementary cost shown. Single rooms are generally inferior to double rooms in size and location. All rooms are assigned by the hotel management upon arrival. Please note that throughout Europe it is standard policy that hotel rooms are not available for check-in before 2:00pm. Requests for special room assignments should be submitted in writing with final payment, 75 days prior to departure. Special room requests cannot be guaranteed. Please be advised that not all hotels in Scandinavia are air-conditioned. Brekke Tours reserves the right to substitute hotels with others of equal or better quality.
The price is based on availability and on exchanges rates in effect at time of planning. Price is subject to increase in event of currency fluctuation unless the package has been paid in full.
Full breakfasts are generally included at hotels. Lunches and/or dinners are included only when specified on the itinerary. Beverages are not included.
